Knowing how much she hates doing anything with food other than eating it, I was gob-smacked when my OH wanted to help me bake. So I asked her to prepare the biscuits for the tiffin and I gave her a rolling pin, a packet of rich tea and a bowl but stupidly no instructions. Before I knew it the biscuits were mere crumbs and my wife had a huge grin ‘I really enjoyed that‘ she said - I, not very calmly, explained that tiffin needs biscuits to be broken into small pieces, like almond size, not crumbs and my poor, much better half‘s face just crumpled. The more upset she got the worse I felt. Especially when she explained that she‘d seen our son do the very same thing a few days ago so she was just copying - bless - he was helping me make cheesecake! Trying to rescue the situation (and biscuits) I promised that I would make something lovely with the crumbs and that her hard work wasn't in vain. Best option when you have spare biscuit crumbs and a sad wife? Cheesecake -chocolate cheesecake!
